Great Ocean Road/ Ballarat Wild Life Road Trip Vlog

I am very happy to be putting this video out finally. It was 
filmed a few months back, but my laptop crashed so I lost
all my files. 
If you have trouble recovering your files from a
dead drive or 
it is asking you to initialize (wipe); there is a
really helpful 
program to make the process almost painless.

I will not list said program in this blog, but if you are in need
of it I will 
reply in the comment section for those who ask.

I hope you enjoy my first travel vlog! It shows some of the 
hidden gems Australia has to offer. As well as some of the 
native wild life, that you can see close-up.

Is it safe to buy 'Fake Makeup' from overseas?

This is a question that I'm sure you have asked yourself when
comparing the price difference between the real and 'fake'
makeup that will come up on online shops such as Ebay.
Suddenly, an eyeshadow palette that would normally cost
around $80 AUD ($50 USD) can be compared to a fake
eyeshadow palette that seems to look the same or close 

for around $6-$12 AUD ($3-$8 USD)


We assume that the formulas and colours will be close and 
that actual effort would be put into making these safe for 
us to use. While you may find the occasional decent product,
the truth is there is no quality control for where these products
are manufactured and/or packaged.


According to other blogs/news sites (such as Dailymail.com.uk
& Mashable.com) these products allegedly can contain anything
from traces of rat feces to household 
cleaning products. Some
can even be tainted my cyanide. 
Needless to say the so-called
'quality' is a big question mark, 
and you are taking a gamble on
your health by using them.


Over this last year I have tried many different products that 
have come from places like China (the world capital for fakes),
Malaysia,
Philippines and Singapore. For me, it is absolutely
worth the 'peace-of-mind' to pay the 
full amount for an authentic
product. I want to be able to trust 
what I am putting on my body
thoroughly tested as well as safe 
to use. 


Not only is it important that it be tested, but not tested 
on any
helpless animals! This is a practice that really needs to 
be 
eliminated from the cosmetic industry, and hopefully worldwide 
one day. 


Thank you for reading my blog, and I hope this post helps you.

Holy Grail Men's Products

If you have a boyfriend or husband that is picky and not as 
experienced in trying different products until finding one that works.
I have put together a list of products that are definite hits and simple
reviews that go with each one. Each of these product's are affordable
and easy to find online. These are products have been personally tested
by my partner, and I trust in buying them on a reoccurring basis.




1. Calvin Klein - Euphoria 

for Men Eau de Toilette




This is one the best smelling Colognes and can be used everyday. This is probably the most appealing cologne I've ever had the pleasure of smelling on my man. The best part is it is priced under $60 (AUD) or $45 USD 
in most places online.








2. 
Diesel Only The Brave by Diesel 

for Men Eau de Toilette Spray





My husband was really surprised at how great this scent not only smelled appealing but had long-lasting wear. You can find it online for under $70 (AUD) or $50 USD.






3.  Nivea Men Moisturising Shave Gel



If your guy is a bit lazy when it comes to moisturising after shaving or just in general. This product is great at reducing nicks and soothing sensitive skin.Nivea is a brand I personally trust, having used their products for years without any noticeable issues. 













5.  PhysioGel Hypoallergenic 

Daily Moisture Therapy Intensive Cream



I received this product in a beauty box about 6 months ago. It is for sensitive skin and I have heaps of moisturisers, so I had my husband try 
it out for me. This was an actual product test, that he did for my blog. 

His skin type is mostly oily with a one dry area, and his skin is even more sensitive than mine. If he uses any product that has an oil base it will cause him to break out dramatically. I'm always on the lookout for holy grail products that can 
help even out his complexion and any skin irritation. 

After a couple of weeks of incorporating this product into his daily routine he told me he immediately felt a difference in his skin. He reported that his skin stayed moisturised all day and that PhysioGel didn't irritate his skin at all.

What I noticed was his complexion became more even after about one week 
of using it daily. This is a holy grail men's product for sensitive skin dry or oily (despite what the label says). 


I really hope this helps someone who is in need of a reliable product 
that their partner simply has no time or patience to figure out.
